How to paint a wall using vinyl silk


Hi I’m Barry
just to recap on this wall over here this is our dry lined wall all this
is now dry we’ve got a primer on this if you refer back to some of our previous
videos again that’s all dry we’ve coated up with primed all the window frame and
the door and the skirting board and now it’s time to put some put some colour on
the walls so again the different product that we using today. This is a
vinyl silk made by Dulux it’s washable which means obviously you can
use it in bathrooms and kitchens again we’re in the areas of them high
condensation also with it being washable when you’ve got like little kids coming
along or corridors where people are running the hands up it’s called
burnishing okay so that’s going to eliminate that as well and again it’s
white wiping down it’s sort of gone out of fashion a bit now the vinyl silks but
people still still use them okay so some of the tools that we’ve got we’ve got
our obviously our ProFinish brush, er i’ve decanted it into a kettle and we’ve got
a radiator roller or they call it a rad roller and again this has got
quite a quite coarse sleeve on it okay now the reason for that is that when
we’re sort of cutting in okay we’re gonna get a smooth line from where our
brush our brush marks are okay and then when we roll it okay when we roll up to
it with our big roller or our nine inch roller okay let me come to about there
you’re going to see a difference in the texture okay when you look down the wall
so you’ve got the smoothness of the brush marks but then the roller okay
that’s going to leave sort of some very small orange peel on there you’re going
to see the difference in the texture so we’re going to cut in first and I’m
going to roll within ten mil and I’ll try and get it closer that’s a lot of
the general trade practice just so it gives it that sort of a
texture there but and then the roller sleeve I’ve got
I’ve change roller sleeves from the one that used on the previous videos this is
microfiber one okay this is gonna give us a really, rather so we don’t get
any orange peel with this we’re trying to keep this to a minimum okay so let’s
get going alright I’m gonna do some cutting in first I’ve got all materials of equipment most importantly my glasses it’s quite
difficult really when you’re cutting cutting against a light like I’ve got a
white ceiling and we’re going against a grey wall so again this paints relatively
thin, I haven’t put any water in it but if you are struggling a bit just add a little
touch of water and then follow the videos about how to cut in neatly and we
should get that perfect straight line so let’s give it a go. Right so I’ll get my kettle, my radiator roller, glasses and me brush. Okay I’ve charged my
radiator roller so that’s that’s ready so it don’t need we don’t need to dip
anything in we’re just literally just rolling it over it just to give it a bit
of texture in tap tap side side as per normal run it along okay I’m gonna brush bounce
the bristles to the top pull it across So again bring it up, bounce the
bristles using this line here to guide the filaments across nice and neat take your time with this and then get your radiator roller
and if you can see that texture that it’s just putting on so I’m very very
close okay so now what I’m going to do is just
going to cut in or the rest of this wall around the skirting boards around the
window reveal door frame and finish up to that wall there now they’ve got the ceiling line cut in
we need to again cutting around the skirting boards and door frames and
around the window reveal okay so we don’t need to cut into those exactly as
we’ve done on the ceiling line okay but equally we don’t get loads of paint all
over this is over the year over the white okay so we’re going with grey walls,
white door frames so I’m just going to sort of bring this down okay and we’re
going to try and just create a nice seal down there just like that okay and then
we’ll fill these up or caulk or leave then after we’ve got the first coat on
there okay so again not this slot so you get loads of it on the front
okay just nice and neat and the same with the skirting boards, just got a quick
de-nib of the walls, dusted all the skirting boards off okay so you can just go on to that to
that lip there that’s all the cutting in them and I were just going to roll it up
if you want to refer to my previous videos on how to load your roller and
how to apply it it’s virtually the same but again this is just a just a small
like a very very low nap on this roller sleeve so it should
give us a really really nice finish so I’m gonna start off on that side and work over
that some like sort of natural way of doing it working from right to left
again if you’re left-handed you might want to do it the other way. I’ve just
I’ve dampened my roller just before I started okay not too much on it just a
small amount don’t forget some of the defects that we can get with our when
we’re rolling again refer back to the previous videos and you’ll see what
you’re doing wrong if you are doing everything wrong right that’s the paint roller nicely loaded nice even coat right that’s the first coat of vinyl
silk on this plaster boarded wall if you notice beforehand we didn’t fill it okay
so we’ve got a coat on it but once you’ve got that first coat you can
really start to see the areas that they do need to be filled okay so even now I
mean I’ve said it just a little look around
but you can see these sort of like little indentations here okay then I’ve
got another one that’s just up there these are just very very small ones okay
and again final circle really highlight these as well because they’re going to
be the bit slightly mid Sheen surface but down here okay you can really see
see a really long one okay so that’s gonna need filling okay and again you couldn’t really see them when it was just just plaster boarded and
unsealed and again a long one here and again are just another one there a large
one there and this is just where it’s just been when they did the dry lining
and they put the joint intake on okay and then it really does make things
stand out okay so again I’ve got a small sort of indentation there that I’m gonna
fill up okay and then just around here this is this is there’s quite a lot to
be filled around this part so they can see this sort of gap there and came to
maybe some flexible filler in there or maybe some just some poly filler and
again just some of the areas that just need some more attention so again I
think we’re going to need to put quite a bit of filler on this to get this sort
of a standard that we actually need okay right so we’ll wait
for that to dry and then we’ll get some filling done you
